In case you’ve been living in a cave this week, the Linux Plumbers Conference submission deadline has been extended to July 31st. This is going to be an awesome technical conference, where you have the chance to work out real design and implementation problems with other Linux developers from across the board. If you work on the “plumbing” of Linux – kernel, system libraries, utilities – then this is the conference for you. And it’s co-located with Kernel Summit, so if you’re going to that you don’t have to wangle another plane ticket out of your manager. If you have a talk accepted, you don’t have to wangle the $250 registration fee either.
We have a good set of submissions already, but we’re taking into account normal Linux developer procrastination and extending the deadline. We’re looking for a few more submissions on anything plumbing-related, not just the topics of the current microconferences. LPC exists in order to bring together the right technical people from across projects to solve technical problems. We have rooms set aside for discussions, talks, and BOFs not currently on the program. If you’re not sure if your proposal is appropriate, submit anyway!
